The exciting (and very rainy) month of May is behind us and summer has unofficially begun! Temperatures continue to rise and warm weather activities are beginning. Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Indianapolis in the month of June:
When: June 2nd from 6:30-10:00PM
Where: Conner Prairie (13400 Allisonville Road, Fishers, IN 46038)
At History on Tap, beer lovers will travel back in time with every sip as they learn about the history of brewing. More than 20 local breweries plan to offer tastings as guests explore Conner Prairie at this adults-only event. Throughout the grounds, craft beer experts will offer demonstrations and answer questions, including several homebrewers who can talk about the basics of the craft and how attendees can pursue the hobby themselves. As the sun sets, rides on the 1859 Balloon Voyage will be offered for an additional cost, providing a view of the grounds and downtown Indy at dusk that guests can’t see during the museum’s daytime hours. Tickets are available here.
